Results painfully slowly coming in. About 5.54m votes have been counted so far with 43% of centres reporting. 333k of thesey have been rejected.
Interestingly, the IEBC this evening announced that the rejected votes will also go into the final tally since the law requires that the winner get 50%+1 of all votes cast.
That means that Kenyatta’s effective vote share at 11PM on Tuesday is 50.3% and Odinga’s is 39.6%.
The difference in raw votes between the two candidates has stagnated at aroung 600k all evening.
It appears that IEBC will simply incorporate the votes rejected without an audit. As I said below this move will likely force a runoff.
6% of ballots cast, so far, were rejected – a massive civic education FAIL, both on the part of IEBC and political parties.
